-year anniversary of the sandy hook shooting. at the time i was very interested in how much these gun sales are averaging your bottom line. we know that in some stores you ran out of the ar-15 style weapon. do you have any regrets selling that wildly popular firearm? >> of course like every american we're concerned about the violence that existness the country. we've been selling firearms and supporting weapons for a long time. we are very responsible in our sales of fires. it's something that we're focused on. and the debate in the country about whether they should be legal or not legal, that's not one participate in on a day-to-day basis. that's an issue of congress. if they're sold in the u.s., went them sold through formal channels rather than through a gun show. as we evaluated everything, the decision to exit those wasn't one we could take. without changing the demand for them, and the demand was very high, our society wants them sold through formal channels where in our business, for example, we videotape every transaction. we cooperate rate with the police. we signed on to the mayor

hurricane sandy, something like $65 billion in damages to the country. rick, isn't this the dynamic in the republican party right now? one side wants to govern, the other side wants to stand on issues? >> i think it's a bit of both. one of the problemsivity with chris christie is his recent speech with the rnc where he says all i care about is winning. we've seen that before. okay, if we win, we get what? i would say, he did what he had to do with the storm. i do think, though, there was a bit of december probably a little too cozy with the president, knowing it was the final daze of mitt romney, with what mark halperin wrote in his book. that might have been a thumb in the eye. i'm not sure. that might have been a style he needs to address. >> he absolutely has that style. >> in 1900, in all three levels of government, government took less than 10% of the american people's money. now we're talking 35% and add a dollar value to mandate, we're talking almost 50%, where is the outrage on the part of the republican party? >> the outrage is there, but if we look at where the republican

of hurricane sandy. it's a major marathon coming after boston. what do you think the he is sage will be? a lot of people will wear ribbons in memory of those who died in boston or injured, what message would you like it to send, the new york marathon, to the world, if you'd like? >> i think the message is that any city cob strong and boston is strong and boston is getting stronger. i think the new york marathon is one of those great races in this country, and i think there are going to be, you know, runners there who are running -- who ran in the boston marathon who maybe didn't finish. i think they will be running for causes for the under privileged and for different charity organizations, just similar to the boston marathon and it's -- it's a great cause and i think, you know, if there is one thing to remember about the boston marathon is that people will cross the finish line and i think president obama said it when he visited boston after the boston marathon bombing was people rise and get up and cross that finish line and i think that will be the goal of everybody at the new york marathon
